Work as closely with the developers as possible. Teach them about localization and the best practices. They’ll appreciate that. You’re the professionals so it’s your duty to make sure the developers get the best service possible. Ask them questions, teach them about our language (for example, not every developer knows that some languages tend to be longer than English and that might cause problems if they didn’t provide any extra room in their strings). The more we talk with the developers (even if you have to send your messages through an intermediary be it a translation company or a localization firm) the easier it will be to localize the games in the future.
1. Great problem solving skills. Every single project is different and requires a unique approach. Don’t be afraid to go an extra mile for the developers. They will appreciate that.
